The Hallows are an ensemble founded and led by Vilein Samson, whose members are allies he encountered along his first journey and decided to join his cause after he was attacked by Nevan Halford. While they are significantly the main focus of Bed of Roses, the group was not united and formally formed until Bed of Roses II.
The ensemble consists of twelve members that grew into a tight-knit group, to the point they are willing to risk their lives for each other. Vilein repeatedly stated that, if any of them were to leave, the group would disband. All members have their own positions within the ensemble and work close together to attain their comrades' goals, as well their own. Their main base of operations is the Stein 13, an airship.
The Hallows are named after the day the group was formed, October 31, or Halloween (short term for "All Hallows' Evening"), and also Vilein's, their leader, 17th birthday.
Thanks to their leader's travels, the Hallows are an extraordinarily diverse group, possessing members from all sorts of races, as well as welcoming even a monster and a sentient computer in their party. They are composed of 12 heroes, all of which became Vilein's friends through a promise he made with them to travel with them again, regardless of their past issues, fighting capacities, former allegiances or others' opinion.
The members all gathered and first met each other during Vilein's comatose state, as some of them, such as Yuhuan and Guella, did not even know of each other. Despite their initial conflicting instances and inability to hold a proper conversation, they eventually managed to work together in order to pay their debts to Vilein and keep their part of the promise they made.

Battles and Events
- All Hallows have first and last names with six letters each, making a total number of twelve — the total number of members in the group. Coincidentally, the word Hallow is also made up of six letters.
- The airship's number could be seen as both an allusion to the number 13's association with bad luck, matching the group's theme, as well as a ghost thirteenth member. Interestingly, according to lunar-solar calendars, there are 12.41 lunations per solar year, thus forming twelve full months and a small thirteenth month.
- The group's large number and their use of masks is a reference to the American heavy metal band Slipknot, known for its members to wear unique masks.
- Each Hallows member has their backstory based on that of one of the Universal Monsters:
